Automotive Rear Drive Units Market: Introduction

  • Automotive rear drive unit is the transmission/ differential fitted on the rear axle of the vehicle. Adoption of the rear drive unit improves vehicle handling, braking, and acceleration. Electric vehicles have an electric motor placed along with transmission in the rear drive unit.

Key Drivers of Global Automotive Rear Drive Units Market

  • Traditionally, passenger cars are front-wheel drive vehicles. However, the shift of consumer preference from sedans to SUVs, which are 4WD & AWD, has fueled the adoption of rear drive units.
  • Increase in consumer demand for comfortable ride, safety, and vehicle stability is boosting the adoption of rear drive units, which in turn is driving the automotive rear drive units market
  • Rise in trend of vehicle electrification and consumer demand for fuel-efficient vehicles has boosted the adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles. Increasing production of electric vehicles has spurred the integration of electric drive units on the rear axle, which in turn is booting the automotive rear drive units market

Challenges to Global Automotive Rear Drive Units Market

  • Passenger vehicles, which are mostly 4WD & AWD, are generally more expensive than conventional two wheel drive vehicles. Therefore, price is a major factor restraining the rear drive units market.

Electric drive units segment to expand considerably

  •  Electric drive units are a single packaged unit comprising an induction motor, differential, and a DC to AC inverter. Electric drive units are compact and lightweight to offset the additional load of the electric batteries. Electric drive units are single-speed or two-speed and several electric automakers, such as Tesla, prefer to incorporate the drive in the rear axle and hence, exclusively use electric drive units. Demand for electric drive units is anticipated to increase significantly as every automaker has a line-up of electric vehicles to be launched.

Passenger vehicle segment expected to expand significantly

  • SUVs and compact SUVs are generally 4WD & AWD vehicles. SUVs contribute to majority sales of passenger vehicles and the preference for SUVs is rising among younger consumers, which in turn is propelling the adoption of rear drive units. Therefore, the passenger vehicle segment is estimated to expand significantly during the forecast period
